Kanye West, Iggy Azalea added to L.A.'s Made in America festival

L.A., rejoice -- Kanye West has been added to #MadeInAmerica lineup.

Kanye West and Iggy Azalea have been added to the West Coast lineup of the Budweiser Made in America festival slated to take place Aug. 30-31 at Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles, Live Nation unveiled on Wednesday.

West will topline the final night of the two-day event, alongside previously announced headliner John Mayer. Azalea will perform on the first day.

Grammy winner and current festival mainstay West is one of a number of acts who will pull double-duty and play the inaugural L.A. edition of the Jay Z-curated festival as well as the concurrent one in Philadelphia.

Both festivals will be staged at the same time, the first time a major music festival has happened simultaneously on opposite ends of the country. The two-day event is expected to attract 50,000 festivalgoers to downtown’s Grand Park and areas around City Hall over Labor Day weekend.

Imagine Dragons, Juanes, Afrojack and Steve Aoki also lead the bill.

The addition of West should satisfy Southland fans disappointed that he was slated for Philadelphia and not L.A. The genre-hopping lineup also includes Rise Against, Weezer, Sublime With Rome, Metric, Capital Cities, Chance the Rapper, Cypress Hill, Gareth Emery, Rita Ora, Nipsey Hussle, ZZ Ward, Hit-Boy, DJ Mustard, A Tribe Called Red and Kendrick Lamar.

West, Kings of Leon, Tiesto, the National, Steve Aoki, Pharrell Williams and J. Cole are among the acts booked for the Philly edition, which will have it’s third run this year. Girl Talk, Spoon, Chromeo, De La Soul, Baauer, the Neighbourhood, Danny Brown, YG and Bleachers also appear on the Philadelphia lineup.

Single-day tickets for both festivals will go on sale Friday through Live Nation. Single-day ticket prices are $99.50 for Los Angeles. A two-day pass tops off at $200, including service fees.
